Subject: Speeding the mails, in style!
A beautiful look at the work of the Railway Post Offices, using the device of training a new man to demonstrate all phases of the operation. Preparing for the journey, setting up the car prior to departure, sorting en route, special treatment of live animals and Registered Mail, throwing out and catching mail at non-stop stations, and the correct procedure for loading a revolver are all covered.
Some motion of film in the gate at the beginning, but it quickly clears up. The narration switches annoyingly between past & present tense.
